Dunlop Sonic Core Elite 135 Review Transcript
I have a review today of the dunlop sonic core elite 135. this came out in 2020 this is one of their traditional head shapes i’ve already reviewed the pro 130 the ultimate and the elite the difference is that the pro 130 has a smaller head size than the ultimate and the elite the elite and ultimate have the same head size and the difference between these two is really just the stringing pattern the elite is what is it again 14 by 18 so it’s got fewer strings than the ultimate which is 16 by 19 i think stats this is 135 gram racket on my scale all in with grip strings and everything 162 grams and the balance point on the beam is 37 centimeters so i would call that head heavy and using the kind of percentage method i think about 55 percent of the weight of this racket is in the head
I will show you some cosmetics and then tell you how i liked it so as usual it’s the green model from dunlop they always have the elites always the green one they’ve got the oh i don’t have the marketing card today big mistake i think this is the gaultier racket this is one of their dunlop’s long running models of course as far as how it played i was expecting not to like this one as much as the others because the last time a few years ago when i tried these this was probably my least favorite of the bunch they’re all great rackets but this was like you know on the margins this was kind of my least favorite this time around this was my favorite of the bunch and i’m not sure if it’s because i played with it most recently or what but everything was going well with this racquet just good control good power everything was tight
I was even running better with this racket moving better i mean i don’t know everything was working so i had i fell in love with this guy i am going to show you some gameplay if you would like to see this baby in action and i will see you in the next video thanks all right let’s do a little gameplay this is game three between myself and richard i can’t remember if it’s one all or not but i remember thinking i played pretty well this game so let’s see oop tough error there
I think I just went for broke there he was in front of me that’s kind of uh it’s pretty risky a little loose for me and then it puts a nice shot in the front left there you go his was short and I just stuck it in there that’s that hard drop that I like it just it looks like I could hit a deep I’m bad at disguising my drop but if I hit it harder it looks like I’m going to hit and because I take my racket back otherwise like that all right well that was the dunlop sonicore elite in action
